Governor Encourages New Yorkers to Keep Using the Tools to Protect Against and Treat COVID-19: Vaccines, Boosters, Testing, and Treatment

14 Statewide Deaths Reported Yesterday

NOTE: Beginning June 24, 2022, the Vaccine data will be updated weekly on Fridays to align with CDC's updated data refresh schedule. For additional information on COVID-19 Vaccination Data provided by CDC, see https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations_vacc-total-admin-rate-total.

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combating COVID-19. Earlier today, Governor Hochul announced the launch of a new public awareness campaign on treatment options for people who test positive for COVID-19 and have symptoms. Yesterday, Governor Hochul announced the launch of a new free Hotline for those who test positive for COVID-19, but don'thave a health care provider.

"We've made significant progress in our fight against COVID-19, but as new variants continue to spread we remain vigilant in our ongoing efforts to protect New Yorkers," Governor Hochul said. "I encourage all New Yorkers to keep using tools that we know protect against and treat COVID-19. Stay up to date on your vaccine and booster doses, and consult with your child's pediatrician about getting them vaccinated as soon as possible. Test often if you have symptoms, and if you test positive stay home and talk to you doctor about available treatment options."

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

  • Cases Per 100k - 47.35
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k - 36.54
  • Test Results Reported - 97,605
  • Total Positive - 9,253
  • Percent Positive - 9.08%**
  • Patient Hospitalization - 2,460 (+63)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 506
  • Patients in ICU - 233 (+3)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation - 70 (-1)
  • Total Discharges - 320,033 (+413)
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 14
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 56,740

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State's percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC - 72,417

This daily COVID-19 provisional death certificate data reported by NYS DOH and NYC to the CDC includes those who died in any location, including hospitals, nursing homes, adult care facilities, at home, in hospice and other settings.
